Around 20 countries in the world speak a language that is written RTL (right-to-left). Thus, RTL support is necessary for any digital device either web or mobile.
Currently, Figma doesn't support RTL language but there are a few community plugins that help us achieve the goal. Let's look into it.
By default when we write an RTL text in Figma it does the following:
It won't show the text IF you haven't selected an RTL supporting font.
It won't automatically make the text RTL. Rather, the individual characters of your text will be written LTR.
- Click on the mentioned link and it will take you to the plugin page
- Click on install and it will automatically load into the Figma
- In Figma, write some RTL and from plugins select the installed plugin to fix the direction of the text
